If you like what The Vines, The Hives, Doves, The Strokes, et al, have to offer then you can't fail to want to listen over and over again to the true rescuers of rock 'n roll, Philadelphia-based Marah. This latest release has been criticised for being over-produced, but it overflows with the band's raw (and slightly manic!) energy: its all there - blistering guitar riffs, fab gutsy harmonica playing on some, all overlaid by David Bielanko's superb gritty vocals with words that deserve to be listened to.
The fact that they love passionately what they're doing shines through on each and every track: there isn't a duff one on the album.
Play it loud and play it over...... Bruce Springsteen liked 'em enough to guest on the opening track, and The Boss ain't a bad judge!
Don't just buy this one though: buy their previous album "Kids in Philly" too - you won't regret it: thats a promise.

HASH(0x9b6e2120) out of 5 stars Most Disappointing Album Ever 17 July 2002
By N. Tomlinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Amazon's review pretty much sums it up for me, this album is an incredible let down after "Kids in Philly." I wrote a brief review of this album for my college newspaper and e-mailed it to Marah (you get the e-mail address through their website). This is their response verbatim, edited for language:
"Hey Man,
Excellent......things are working. See, our new album was meant to drive pathetic rootsy music purists to an early grave. You know, people like yourself who think they really know "REAL" music, but who are actually just overweight f--kwits (like you) who never get laid by anything less than a hippopotamus. Anyway, go buy our new one and give it another whirl......it really is our best one yet. Later on, fatboy.
Marah"
Hardly the most mature response to criticism, but I can at least respect them for answering their mail. Don't waste your time and money on this album; in fact, don't even bother checking the song clips. That way you'll be able to still feel good about "Kids in Philly," and maybe hold the band in some degree of esteem.

HASH(0x9922a054) out of 5 stars Marah did it again!!! 3 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a native Philadelphian and a loyal Marah fan, this review may be a little biased. However, I felt the need to defend the boys since so many of their so-called fans are moaning about this third album. First of all, different does not mean bad. Change is a good thing and I think the songs on this record really define what the band has evolved into...they are a great rock and roll band. The songs are electric and inviting. Yes, Owen gave them a "new" sound, however, the band has put their heart and soul into these songs and you can certainly tell. I haven't stopped listening to it for over a week now and I hope that this is the album that opens the doors for them! It's time that other people are finally able to experience what I have have had the priveledge of listening to for the past four years!! Give it a try...you won't be dissappointed.

HASH(0x992c8a5c) out of 5 stars Hello -- Marah? Are you in there? 20 July 2002
By Kevin Bulmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A lot of Marah's fans are going to hate this record. I don't. But, I can't help feeling a little perplexed; almost as if I've lost an old friend. This is still Marah, and it's good, but not for the same reasons.
I first saw Marah as an opening act two summers ago, and they blew Steve Earle (one of my favourites) off the stage with their raw, eclectic energy. I bought "Kids In Philly" right there, and it's been one of my favourites ever since. The energy on that record seemed, I guess, more sincere. "Float Away" is energetic, but it comes across as a more manufactured.
To be honest, as soon as I heard "Float Away", I thought, 'Uh-oh, here comes radio.' How selfish is that? Contrary to a lot of fans of bands like Marah, I don't feel they owe me a darn thing. They earned my attention by their live performance, and I choose whether or not to buy the records, and they can do whatever they like.
That said, I'll enjoy this record for what it is -- a hard-driving collection of immediately likeable songs that carry some of the same lyrical irony of their earlier work, even though it sounds like a different band. And, I can't wait to hear these songs next to those from "Philly" and "Cut the Crap" in concert, and see how they fit together.
HASH(0x9992948c) out of 5 stars A band reaching for the golden ring... 10 Sept. 2002
By N. Lind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...and falling flat on their face. I do admire Marah's stance of 'We're gonna go for mainstream success' because before this record, they (to me) were one of the top 5 bands in America. 'Kids In Philly' and 'Let's Cut The Crap Tonight' rank among the albums of the year when they were put out. So it seemed like a logical progression to go for it all while the 'buzz' was still on them.
Honestly, the record would have been so much better if it was less noisy. On the lead single 'Float Away' near the end, there are at least four vocal tracks saying something different. It's very hard to make sense what's going on, turning a potentially great song in the vein of Bon Jovi or Springsteen (ironic that he guests on 'Float Away') into a noise collage. There are a few catchy songs on here nonetheless, like 'Shame' and 'What 2 Bring', but they too are buried under layers of noise. It's kind of like there's too MUCH sound on this record. If they stripped some of the background vocals and guitars down (especially on songs like 'Crying On An Aeroplane') this becomes a good, solid disc. Maybe not as good as the first two, but an admirable follow-up. Instead this becomes a potential career-killer. Hopefully the next one will be better.
If you're still interested in hearing it, try to find the version of 'Float Away' w/o Springsteen and then compare that to the album version to see what I mean about too much sound.
HASH(0x9927d174) out of 5 stars for the hottest chicks in new york 27 July 2002
By N. Tomlinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I wish I had some other mode of defending myself, but you don't have a profile available through which I could get an e-mail address, so I'll just have submit my defense here. As to giving the Strokes a good review, well, I really don't give a damn whether a band is a commercial success or not. I heard them play back in October, I loved it, I bought the album, I loved it as well, so I wrote the review. Does hype matter? Probably. But I never take it into account (you conventiently overlooked my reviews of Buckcherry and the Tossers, two bands who receive no hype at all)... As to you apparent accusation that I made up the response from Marah, well, I cannot prove anything I suppose. I sent them my review a few days before the album was released, so perhaps they weren't out promoting it then. Or maybe the response was from an over-zealous webmaster. I really do not know. But I assure you that that is the response I received. Thank you, sorry that this "review" isn't very helpful to others looking at this album (I won't be hurt if anybody labels this as unhelpful).
